If I Could See Beyond Today

To be able to see what God sees - to know what the future holds - would be amazing, but what would that mean for my life?

Would I avoid situations I know ahead of time would bring sorrow?
Would I do things the easy way because I know the hardship it would bring?
Would I have unending joy because I avoided these things?
Would there even be a relationship with God?

v. 3 If we could see, if we could know,
We often say
But God in love a veil doth throw,
Across our way;
We cannot see what lies before,
And so we cling to Him the more
He leads us till this life is o'er.
and obey.
1943 Norman J. Clayton Publishing Co.

I would have it no other way. To know God and to know His love is the way to live. He knows me and knows what's best for me, even though I try to tell myself that I know best. He will not give me anything I can't handle. He will not let anything touch me that hasn't gone through His hands first. He is my strength, my joy - my Father. He loves me so much.

If I would see beyond today - I would only want to see His face and hear Him say "Welcome home."

Lifting you up in prayer, Robbin! Uncertain times are not easy, but you certainly are keeping the faith and setting a very good example.

If I could see beyond today, I'd still be worried about what I didnt' do right yesterday! So, I'm glad I can only see one day at a time. Keep praising Him, Robbin!
